  3. Beginner Servers ARK with all its complexities and depth is arguably not the easiest game to jump into. When beginner servers were introduced last year in May, we saw them as a way of introducing new players to the game while still providing some of the challenges they might run into playing on a more heavily populated server. This also provided the ability to transfer to a more popular server at your freedom. Since early game in ARK is the most challenging, we saw this as a low-stress way of getting up to speed. We didn't intend for these servers to be a long-term place to becom

  5. Recently we launched a new initiative, Classic PvP, which aimed to bring back the original days of PvP. These early days were full of fun and engaging battles with limited technology and an emphasis on the primitive aspects of PvP. Recent feedback from the community suggests that Classic PvP is a good start to reimagining early PvP but there's still more you'd like to see. When we originally launched Classic PvP, we launched it with a seasonal-based concept in mind. The idea of implementing a seasonal-based approach in an ARK game-mode was as enticing to us as it was to the community. O

  19. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Valguero for Console It's a light week in terms of news, as this week the team will be busy addressing any recent issues related to the Valguero launch. We'll also be identifying ways to address recent duping from an exploit that was isolated to the XBOX network. We've fixed this particular exploit with the Valguero patch and will work with the community to identify exploits that may still exist. Transfers should be re-enabled on all servers now. As always, transfers on Valguero will be disabled for XBO

  21. Update Concerning PS4 Servers PVE 383-386 On Tuesday, July 16th at 10 PM EST, the machine running these servers experienced a critical hardware failure. Typically if this happens, we are able to restore the server to a backup from an earlier point in time. Unfortunately, that is not the case and this machine has no earlier backups. What this means for you: These servers will be revived with a clean save later today. Our deepest apologies to our survivors on these servers. This is a very rare occurrence and we will work to prevent these disruptions in the future! Affect
